Digital Transformation is a journey - getting from legacy practices like waterfall to continuous everything is not a button you push, and it can be messy. We know that organizations are doing it. Some have been built bottom up on these practices, but even large regulated organizations have made the transition by ripping off the bandaid and making a huge shift, while others are operating in an environment which for the foreseeable future will be a combination of old and new. Watch this panel of leading DevOps experts as they talk about the digital transformation journey and what the trends they see happing today.
This session is collectively part of PagerDuty Virtual Summit.

Connie-Lynne Villani, Director of Incident Response, Fastly
"All hands on deck" is the familiar cry for so many incidents, but it's often the wrong choice. What you really want is the right people, at the right time, fully prepared both mentally and physically to handle an incident. That starts with a process that puts people first every step of the way, from preparation to post-event analysis.
This talk will give you practical, actionable strategies for building a process that helps everyone bring their best selves to incident response, even if you think "soft skills" are too hard to learn.

Tarun Pereira, Gap Inc | Mark Huber, Cox Automotive | Divya Balasubramanian, PagerDuty
In today’s complex organizations, a centralized IT Operations team typically works with distributed engineering teams that use modern methodologies such as Cloud services, DevOps and microservices. Though these tools have made it possible to deploy and maintain applications in production easily, they can also cause complexities which make it difficult for IT to quickly identify issues and probable root cause before customers are impacted.
In this session, you’ll hear from Gap Inc. and Cox Automotive on how they’ve improved incident response collaboration and coordination across IT service management and distributed engineering teams, using PagerDuty’s ServiceNow integration.
- Learn best practices in helping IT Service Management and engineering teams work together to resolve incidents faster
- Understand how to utilize the PagerDuty / ServiceNow integration to enable teams to work in the tool that they are most familiar with

Andrew Marshall, Director of Product Marketing at PagerDuty
It’s no surprise that business and technology leaders are drawn by the promise of enhanced scalability, business agility, and cost savings — but did you know that 30% of cloud migration projects fail? A cloud-based approach requires new methods to address the increased complexity of hybrid-cloud environments, where siloes can emerge across people, operational processes, and technologies.
The rise of AIOps has enormous potential to connect contextualized information across siloed teams and technology and, where possible, to help automate operations. Join Andrew Marshall, Director of Product Marketing at PagerDuty, as he explores the accelerating trend towards cloud migration, key challenges that exist in a hybrid and multi-cloud world, and how AIOps technologies can be used as a part of that broader strategy.
In this webinar, you will learn how teams migrating to the cloud can:
- Leverage PagerDuty to help bridge silos across people, processes and technology
- Quickly adapt to a constantly changing cloud infrastructure, and the new signals you need to track.
- Adopt a Services model that empowers teams to spend more time innovating, and less time on queued incident response.
- Effectively manage a hybrid or multi-cloud environment by using AIOps tools.
As companies face an unprecedented acceleration of digital transformation, many IT organizations are turning to AIOps as a potential investment area. Their hope is to use AI to improve operations, leveraging machine learning to create more data-driven insights, with the ultimate goal of being able to scale more efficiently and address issues faster. But is AIOps just hype? And if it’s not just hype, is there a way to avoid lengthy implementation cycles and the need to hire data scientists to develop complicated models? Businesses don’t have years to wait — they need results now.
Join this webinar to learn more about:
- Defining AIOps and the opportunity for ITOps: what are buyers looking for, and what is possible today?
- Owning the conversation around AIOps – key considerations when creating your strategy
- How PagerDuty can help unlock the power of AIOps for real-time operations

It’s not news that the world has gone digital, requiring you to interact with your customers 24×7.
What may be news is that to be successful, you need to be able to operate in a truly real-time fashion, empowering the individuals and teams that own and operate digital services to better serve customers. The benefits of being effective at real-time work are tangible, with mature companies resolving incidents 2 hours faster on average than less mature peers.
PagerDuty has been in the business of real-time work for almost a decade, and we’ve developed a maturity model that complements DevOps benchmarks and research such as the DORA State of DevOps report. The model uniquely focuses on real operational practices implemented by best-in-class organizations, including key criteria for success across the domains of culture, knowledge sharing, customer orientation, and technology.
Join us to learn about the model and how it can be used to help organizations optimize their real-time operations. You’ll learn:
- What excellence in real-time operations looks like
- How to determine your team’s maturity in real-time operations work
- How to implement best practices in incident response and other operations processes

Everybody puts value on work. But not all work is the same or valued in the same way.
What if we told you there’s a way to gain/protect up to $1 million in new revenue, reduce unplanned downtime by more than 60%, and improve team productivity by nearly 25%?
In this IDC/PagerDuty joint-webinar, you will learn:
- The everyday value of structured work and its role in the greater strategy of the organization
- The ephemeral value of time-sensitive, unplanned work and the impact it has on opportunity, risk, and continuous improvement
- How you can better prioritize different sets of work to maintain a stable and reliable IT environment.
- How this understanding can positively impact the bottom line of the business

The network operations center, or NOC, is often the first concept that comes to mind when business leaders think of IT operations. It’s a room full of people, not dissimilar to a power plant control room, who spend their shifts watching dials and gauges, ready to spring into action at the first sign of problems. With the rise of cloud-native monitoring tools, the DevOps movement, and a massive acceleration in the rate of change of systems and applications, many of those same business leaders are asking themselves whether the days of the NOC are numbered. But there’s a third option: modernizing and virtualizing your NOC.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss:
- NOC modernization — and why you might want to consider
- How the NOC of 1995 differs from the NOC of 2020
- How automating manual processes and inefficiencies in the NOC can save you real dollars
Bojan Simic, Founder, Digital Enterprise Journal and Cognanta | Julie Gunderson, DevOps Advocate, PagerDuty
